Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

I was thoroughly disappointed by this movie. Noone is nice to each other, there are no great character traits. There is violence, slapping, weapons and just plain rudeness. This is what's wrong with society; that is how I felt.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
